Farrow and Ball, Purple Carrot and Hunted and Stuffed…

Purple Carrot, a local community project based in Barnes, upcycles furniture that would otherwise go to landfill. Not only do they do this but they employ local people who are out of work or living on the margin. It’s a wonderful project and they teamed up with Farrow and Ball in Richmond to upcycle some beautiful items in the new F&B colours.

As with  ‘A Colourful Adventure‘ a delightful little book by Farrow and Ball, which follows the journey of neglected furniture into magnificent beauties, here is Purple Carrot’s furniture journey:

Founder of Hunted and Stuffed, Ellie Laycock, and author of ‘Creating The Vintage Look‘ also got involved and was able to give them some upcycling design ideas including the leather drawer straps- what an awesome idea!

To support this project we are showcasing all of these items in our shop and online under Pop Up Shop! Get in quick-  these pieces will go fast!
